for sure. as far as what the u.s. gs says people felt, actually what it felt like map basically. anyone anybody that felt it reported in, the darker highlighted areas here, right around the epicenter is where people felt it the most. you see it's very close to the d.c. area. only about 20 miles away. so this sort of magnitude quake, anything around 4.0 you're going to feel it 20, 30 miles away. that's exactly what we felt. but you don't typically see much in the way of damage with these kind of thing. maybe think, this is completely unusual. why is this happening? 90% of earthquakes that happen across, happen at the boundaries of tectonic plates, like out there in california. you have the san andreas fault. here we're in the middle of a plate. there are faults underneath the crust. certainly down around the i-64 corridor, a fault. many minor faults. generally speaking, not large enough or active enough, fredricka to produce earthquake. the last time, 20, if not 30 years, it's been a while for sure. >> we'll hear about it from plenty of people that we know. rob marciano, thanks so much.
